When a strange man tells a woman she looks “nice”, he is informing her that he approves of the way she is performing her femininity.

Even if he is not explicitly harassing her, this is a micro aggression. It is a reminder that our appearance is what is valuable about us, that we are consistently being evaluated and that it behooves us to keep living up to your standards.
